Archaeology Notes

NG53NE 158 5599 3517 (centred)

A small ruinous oval structure (a possible farm building) was recorded here during a field survey of the Suisnish area of Raasay by ACFA, who have conducted surveys on the island every year since 1995. It measures around 8.6m x 4.9m and has had a lot of clearance material piled on top of its remains.
